“But Caleb tried to quiet the people as they stood before Moses. ‘Let’s go at once to take the land,’ he said. ‘We can certainly conquer it!’”
The Israelites had arrived at the very brink of the Promised Land. Poised to enter in, they sent 12 spies to check things out.
When the 12 spies returned, 10 gave a discouraging report. But two spies, Joshua and Caleb, gave an encouraging report.
The problem with the spies who gave the majority report was that they didn’t see God for who He is. They only saw problems. God, however, had promised He would give them the land—a land flowing with milk and honey.
